it. so the jobs numbers probably helped slow the obama fall but now we move into another week people will be talking about biden, and then a couple of more with romney and obama. >> bill: yeah, i was surprised and impressed, i guess that obama proved -- so he didn't have a good night, we all know that, but i thought he bounced back pretty quickly the next day. he has been having a lot of fun with the big bird line. and it showed a lot of resilience, i thought, and as you point out the job numbers came on friday which gave him another little boost, cutting the impact of any romney bounce. >> yeah he has an incredible amount of fire and energy when it is his back up against the wall. >> bill: yeah. >> it's almost like he puts himself in positions like that so that he can get excited about politics again. he obviously didn't want to be on that stage, wednesday night. you could just tell he was like, god, 90 minutes. i'm just going to stand here for 90 minutes and let this guy say stuff, and then he sees that the entire nation is mocking him, and then he get
% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minuses of these two candidates. what i really need to see, though, to make any judgment about how this is going to really affect the election or how it has affected voters is i need to look in the battleground states, don't you think? you need to look at the battleground state of ohio. you need to look at wisconsin. you need to look at iowa. you need to look at virginia, florida, and see whether in fact the race has tightened, particularly in a state like ohio, wolf, where the president had a commanding lead by five or six points. let's see if in that state which the republican campaign has to win, i believe, if mitt romney's to become president, let's see if the poll numbers in that state of ohio which we're going to see as this week proceeds, let's see if those numbers have tightened there because that's going to be a k
nationally. right now, romney at 49%. obama at 45%. that's a significant shift from only a few weeks ago. same poll, likely voters at obama 51%. romney, 43%. that's a dramatic shift indeed. let's get the reaction, jim acosta is traveling with the republican presidential nominee. what are they saying, jim? >> reporter: wolf, i can tell you right now that mitt romney is standing behind me addressing an understandably small crowd of supporters here at newport news, virginia, it is raining buckets here. but that's not dampening the enthusiasm of the romney campaign. they feel very good about this poll that just came out from the pew research center, showing a four-point lead among likely voters for mitt romney over the president. that is a kind of poll that they have not seen in some time. so they're very happy about that. i got some instant response from a senior romney official who told me over an e-mail a few moments ago that they are encouraged by the enthusiasm that they're seeing from supporters who they call energized. we have been seeing that over the last several days at various cam
guy is going to do a better job. president obama and mitt romney start the week with a crucial showdown on wednesday at the first presidential debat in denver. at a rally in las vegas, president obama tried to manage the speculations. >> i know the media is speculating who is going to have the best zinger. i don't know about that. governor romney, he's a good debater. >> reporter: as both hunker down for intense practice, the polls show americans overwhelming with the election and the president lose. in a new abc news/"washington post" poll out this morning, 63% of registered voters expect president obama to win the election. that's his biggest lead so far when it comes to expectations. but looking at like hi supporters, the race is much closer. president obama leads mitt romney by two points. republican governor chris christie predicted romney could close the gap with president obama after a strong showing on wednesday's debate. >> i'm absolutely confident when we get to thursday morning, george. >> reporter: president obama is keeping his answers short and concise. >> the pre
survey, just out today, among likely voters, romney now leads obama 49-45. three weeks ago, pugh had the president on top 51-43. that's quite a turn around. it's due to the debate where 66% told pugh they say mitt romney won. just 20% believe mr. obama prevailed. rasmussen dale tracking poll today has the race tied among likely voters. 48% each. in iowa and colorado, the president is hanging tough. in iowa, it's obama 49, romney 47. colorado, obama 49, romney 48. both are dead heats within the margin of error. joining us from washington, democratic strategist marge mcclinton in for juan williams and mary katherine ham. the pugh number, 49-45 surprised me, mary katherine. same with you? >> i was a little surprised at how far it moved. i'm not surprised it's moving in mitt romney's favor. i mean, this was 70 million people watching and the guy who showed up, mitt romney showed up to do that job that night was the best he had ever looked and certainly obama, the worst he ever looked on a stage with someone else, i would say when we have seen him in the situations before. people tuned in
barack obama put in this past week over the next 24 hours. what do you expect we'll see? >> some momentum for mitt romney in those national polls, the daily tracking national polls. he's definitely picked up. also has a lot more excitement with his crowds right now, and it seems like it's re-energized his campaign but what i'll watch are those polls in the key battleground states, places like ohio, virginia, florida, colorado. those have to start closing up for mitt romney, as well. so far they haven't, in fact, there is a new poll out this morning coming out of the university of denver showing barack obama maintains a four-point lead in colorado. >> and it is the battleground states where this race will be won. and lost. >> absolutely. >> very quickly, vice presidential race. any precedent for a vice presidential debate impacting the trajectory of a race? >> not -- probably one of the most serious debate moments ever is that debate moment where lloyd bentson took on dan quayle and said "you're no jack kennedy," but in the end george h.w. bush still won that race. >> george stephanopoulos
news. that debate begins at 6:00 p.m. >>> president obama makes one fund raising visit next week. a week from monday he will host a dinner in san francisco. now to dine with the president will set you back $20,000 a plate. that campaign has not yet announced the musical guest. >>> our election coverage continues at 10:30, we look at the proposition that eases the state's tough three strikes sentencing law. that if approved could lead to the release of thousands of inmates. >>> san francisco mayor ed lee was on hand earlier this evening to kick off the 30th annual oracle open world user conference. larry ellison delivered the opening dress debuting new cloud computing products. 50,000 people are expected to attend the week long event at masconi center. the area around howard street is expected to be blocked and drivers will likely experience delays. the event is expected to bring in an influx of cash to retailers. >> it has a really huge impact to the city. i think it brings a lot of revenue and we're lucky to have it. >> reporter: open world runs through october 4th. >>> more det

higher than previously thought. the number marked a boost to president obama's reelection bid in the aftermath of his widely criticized debate performance last week. addressing supporters of the university of virginia, obama said the country has come too far to turn back. >> more people are getting jobs. every month reminds us we still have too many friends and neighbors who are looking for work, and to many middle-class families are struggling to pay the bills. they were struggling long before the crisis hit. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it is a reminder this country has come too far to turn back now. >> also campaigning in virginia, republican challenger mitt romney downplayed the new figures. >> this cannot go on. when i am president of the united states, when i am president of the united states -- [applause] that unemployment rate is going to come down not because people are giving up and dropping out of the work force, but because we are creating more jobs. i will create jobs to get america wo
obama and a five-point spread in one week in gallup. i know you will have scott rasmussen said in a few minutes. the race is two point advantage for romney, pulled ahead in virginia, and pulled ahead in florida and closed gap significantly in ohio. playing off fence at right time. you have to have a good october to be president. bill: you mentioned three big states. we'll get to that in 10 minutes time. kirsten, what do you think about the mo? is it now in mitt's favor? >> right now it is, yeah but i think you have to bear in mind this could shift again just as quickly if in the next debate president obama does very well. so i don't know that this is something that you should take as being, a permanent shift but it is definitely gotten mitt romney, back in the game i think before it was sort of drifting, the momentum was drifting toward obama. certainly if you looked at the battleground states and now you're seeing there is a battleground poll out today, they're neck-and-neck. so i think, a race is on what i would say. bill: i see. what rasmussen was saying last week. give me sunday mor
-making coming out of the obama camp regarding president obama's debate performance last week that blamed everything from the altitude, to the moderator. over the weekend i saw reports that they were now blaming john kerry for doing a poor job as a stand in for governor romney during their mock debate sessions. look, it wasn't just a bad debate for president obama, it's been a bad four years. he just doesn't have the issues or the facts on his side. we have 23 million americans who are struggling for work, we have 47 million americans of record on food stamps. one in six americans living in poverty. this obama economy has not worked for people and we can't afford another four years like the last four. bill: you know what democrats are saying, they are saying that mitt romney was lying. that's the word they are using. james kleinsberg talked about. others talked about fabricating issues. what does the romney team say about those charges? >> i'll tell you, bill, this is a very petulant and unpresidential response from the obama campaign team. i tell you the big difference in that debate as
. this week is the big vice presidential debate. but next week, mr. romney and president obama will face off againing on long island and romney aides say there will be next week another policy speech, next one on the economy. >> shep: you were talking about policy. what is it that governor romney says he would do differently? >> well, there haven't been a lot of specifics. there are some differences, however. for instance, mr. romney has said he will move to impose sanctions on iraq -- iran with the international community much more aggressively, as well as additional pressure from the united states. he argues that he will enable the rebels in syria to arm themselves more effectively, to go up against the iran-backed regime of assad who has been crushing rebels and killing civilians. and mr. romney said he will link relations with egypt, now led by pot morsi of the muslim brotherhood, what has been described virulent anti-west and says our relationship will be based on trade, something mr. romney said should be much more aggressively policed and pursued, free trade and fairer trade with chin
on middle income families. >> obama: now, five weeks before the election, he's saying his big, bold idea is never mind. >> romney is saying he would push for tax relief is another flip-flop. from his statement a few weeks ago that we should not expect a huge cut in taxes if he's elected president. we'll do some fact checking for you in the next current news update. despite the lies and contradictions from romney, a new cnn poll says 67% of voters do think he won the debate. more bill press coming up after the break. stay with us. you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv viewer for capella university. matter. education is the key. it is the vehicle. it's the way in which we evolve. every journey is different every possibility is unique. but the beginning, the beginning is my craft. i'm an ordinary person striving to achieve extraordinary things. it started with a dream and i'm on my way there.

. >> steve: then president obama in hollywood making fun of his lousy debate performance last week. >> and everybody here incredible professionals, they're such great friends and they just perform flawlessly night after night. i can't always say the same. [ laughter ] >> steve: funny line. this morning, his campaign has a new plan to turn things around and it relies on one person. insider dana perino here to explain. >> pete: and the nascar sprint cup spinning out of control. champ triggering a massive pileup at talladega. see this, believe it on "fox & friends" right now. >> steve: that was the last lap and amazingly, even though cars were flying all over place, nobody seriously hurt. >> pete: thank god. >> gretchen: 15 cars involved. more in later. peter is in for brian today. good morning to you. some head lines now, how should the world view america? in a few hours, we'll find out what mitt romney believes. he's going to give a major foreign policy address in virginia. he is expected to criticize the obama administration's response to the benghazi, libya terrorist attack. he'll
omitted last week between president obama and romney. the issue of sensible gun laws. the first presidential debate took place a short distance from aurora, colorado. a victim had a message for the candidates in an ad that airs during the debate. >> this past summer in a movie theater in colorado, i was shot. shot in the face and neck. but i was lucky. in the next four years, 48,000 americans won't be so lucky because they will be murdered with guns in the next president's term. enough to fill 200 theaters. when you watch the presidential debates, ask yourself, who has a plan to stop gun violence? let's demand a plan. it didn't get an area. joining us is comedian chris. john warner and rebecca, contributor to the magazine. i feel of two minds about the debate. focus is good. depth is good. i was appreciative they allowed depth on the issues they talked about, but frustrates there's only so many of these. one is foreign policy. in terms of domestic policy, the next debate is basically it and the vice president debate. i feel there's a lot of stuff i want to hear them on. the othe
: we talk a lot about what had been going on for the 2 1/2 weeks since the obama administration finally said it was a preplanned terrorist attack. we were wondering who was going to tate fall. james clapper, director of national intelligence, he seems like he's going to be the scapegoat. he's saying maybe we didn't tell the white house in time, maybe they didn't know. take a listen to him a couple years ago. remember this bumbling statement he had here? watch. >> how serious is it? any implication that it was coming here and these are things they have seen were coming here director clapper? i was a little surprised you didn't know about london, director clapper. >> oh, i'm sorry. i didn't. >> eric: that was diane sawyer doing an interview as there were people being arrested in for terrorism, he had no idea. >> it's almost as if there was picture and picture. he hadn't been briefed well. that was classic, also -- rare because we haven't had the terrorist attacks that we thought we could have had because we have these protocols put in place after 9-11. jim clapper, across the board from w
be having a rough week but with an approval rating of 65% or higher, michelle obama is still very popular with the american people. we've been following the first lady for the past several months and granted unusual access during this very high-stakes time in her life. i'll have a chance to sit down with mrs. obama at the white house. >> are we going to keep moving this country forward? what are we going to do! >> reporter: she said her husband's not so secret weapon. how many days to go? >> we're in the homestretch. >> reporter: this crossing the country the past few weeks not to mention a slew of talk shows. >> he's funny. i'm funnier. >> and the anniversary. >> reporter: it was then the anniversary, not exactly the date of her dream. she did get a hug from ann romney. >> is there a certain sisterhood between women who are in this position? >> absolutely. and this is something that barack and i have talked about, we've learned this over time, whoever makes this kind of sacrifice, they deserve a pat on the back because that's how this democracy woulds. >> outside the white house there's
of denver, where last week's presidential debate was held, gives president obama a slight edge over mitt romney in colorado, a key swing state. 47% to 43%. paul steinhauser joins us live now. what do you make of all this? >> reporter: the new poll numbers. those are pretty much in line, john, with what we saw prior to the debate. other polls conducted in colorado, as you mentioned, a key battleground state, where the president had a slight edge, same story. this new university of denver poll. among independents, the president has a double-digit lead. when are we going to see more polls? you're going to see a bunch over the next 48 hours the next couple of days leading up to the vice presidential debate. a bunch of major organizations, including cnn, are in the field right now. in key battleground states and with national surveys, john. >> the president coming off of the heels of what many are considering a lackluster debate performance. even he was poking fun at it over the weekend at his hollywood fund-raiser. >> and everybody here, incredible professionals. they're such great friends.
in the key battleground commonwealth at vmi. romney team sensing a clear hoping here against president obama with all that has happened in the middle east over the past few weeks and months, especially in libya. nia, what do you think governor romney reveals tomorrow? does he reveal anything significant? >> well, my guess is he probably won't. we've seen mitt romney give several major foreign policy speeches, one last year down in south carolina. he gave another out in nevada. of course, he had the foreign policy trip. he's obviously trying to make headway around this libya issue, which, in fact, if you read a lot of the reports coming out about the administration's handling of this, he has a real case to press against this administration in terms of the shifting reasons that the libya thing actually happened. so i think he's really going to talk not only about american exceptionalism, but also talk about america being a leader in the world and make the case that obama has not led, not been a strong leader on iran, on the middle east, the arab spring. that's what he'll do. i think the questi
of that attack president obama's men station received about a dozen intelligence reports suggesting that militants connected to al qaeda were involved in that attack. now despite those reports, top u.s. intelligence officials spent nearly two weeks claiming the attack was spontaneous while playing down the involvement of militant groups. ambassador john bolton is former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. big picture here. what do you think the cost is to the united states on the world stage that we're continuing to discuss this infighting who knew what when and not going out and getting the people that committed this act? >> well, i think it shows that there's desorganization within the state department, within the administration, about exactly what happened and i think that is a signal of vulnerability potentially at other embassies in the middle east or around the world. i think the consequence we need most here we need to find the people who actually perpetrated the attack and either eliminate them or get them in custody and start questioning them. that's poten
think it's going to play out. the obama team obviously knows they had a poor showing in last week's debate. so they've got to gain some traction here. booiden is a really good debate. i think you'll see ryan be mr. wonky. that's his role. a lot of numbers you'll hear from him. probably more zingers from biden. i think they have some ground to make up. >> you know, i don't think a lot of people necessarily realize how much debating joe biden has done throughout the course of his career. he's run for president six or seven times. i exaggerate for effect. chair of the foreign relations committee. here's a guy who's spent a great deal of time in public in a healthy exchange of ideas. >> that's right. that's right. i think we'll see that on display. if you look back at 2008, he was probably the best debater out of the field. i think he's going to bring those skills to bear. he had a real high-wire act last time in 2008 when he had to go against sarah palin. i think he came out of that debate looking like the statesman. i think ryan has to pass the commander in chief test. i'm not sure
the obama administration regarding the security situation in libya in the weeks leading up to that deadly attack on our consulate. according to brand-new documents the administration allegedly ignored repeated calls to increase security there. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge joins us live from washington. >> reporter: just a short time ago a letter has been sent to the house government oversight committee, they are holding the hearing next week on the security lapses at the consulate and it's from the secretary of state hillary clinton and she's asking them not to reach any final determination about the attacks until the state department's own internal review by the accountability review board also known as the arp is complete. and that is reportedly not expected now until after the election. that letter reads in part quote i intend to share the error of these findings and our response with the congress and would encourage you to withhold any final conclusions about the benghazi attack until the committee can review the arb findings. a senior republican on the house ov
but the bigger one will be following week at hofstra university when mitt romney and president obama go head-to-head again. that is different kind of format. the town hall format. president and mitt romney will talk to individual voters asking questions, that may be a better format for the president. jon: but it does seem that states like ohio and nevada are getting tighter, and you know, with, well the election is four weeks from tomorrow. if that momentum holds for the romney team, it could really be a surprising turn around come election day? >> it certainly could. of course the romney campaign and republican national committee did a big turnout drive this past weekend. they have been doing a lot of that. we've seen it, we've seen it more from democrats. they have been exposing some of their organizational advantages all summer long. we're just now seeing how much the romney campaign is doing in some of these states. you're right, it absolutely could turn around. until we see romney leading in a lot of these averages in a lot of these states the president still has the edge. jon: one of t
.a.! >> reporter: enlisting a cast of celebrities, including stevie wonder, president obama picked up a little cash in california sunday night, made a self dep ri indicating illusion to last week's performance in the debates. >> everybody here incredible professionals, great friends, and they just perform flawlessly, night after night. i can't always say the same. >> we're going to win florida, we're going to take back the white house. >> reporter: wrapping up a three day swing through the sunshine state, mitt romney is more confident and relaxed, invigorated by the strong debate and enthusiastic crowds. sunday, he previewed today's foreign policy speech in which he'll paint president obama as weak. >> i commit to you i will be a leader. when i am president, i will take the care that it takes to rebuild our principles and restore the principles that made america so strong. >> reporter: with the race tightening, the campaigns are sharpening attacks. a top obama adviser dismissing romney's debate performance as fundamentally dishonest. >> mitt romney will say absolutely anything to get elected. >> re
the senate and that he can block president obama's agenda. so let's just be honest about what's going on here. >> senior congressional correspondent dana bash, our guide, this week as we check on the key races. we have been following this race. it is already -- it long since has gotten personal. last night, kicked it up a notch. >> reporter: oh, my, sure did. i was in massachusetts doing a story on this race this summer and talked to both candidates. and it was already going to be an intense race. and it was already clear then that this -- these two -- let's be honest, these two people not only are they running against each other for a seat they don't seem to like each other. that was incredibly clear with the sound bite you just played, but also clear with this -- maybe the line of the night, which came from scott brown. listen. >> if you're going to comment on my record, i would at least have you refer to it -- >> excuse me. >> go ahead. >> i'm not a student in your classroom, please let me respond, okay? thank you. >> reporter: the back story there is not just the obvious, which is that wa
that this was a preplanned attack and yet the obama administration, the white house, the president, all of the individuals involved, spent the course of the next week or so denying that. what's going on here? is this incompetence? is it confusion, or, is it a deliberate, intentional cover-up? >> i think it is deliberate to downplay the threats because clearly the narrative that the obama campaign has been trying to push that usama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is crushed and we know that is not true. like a balloon, if you crush the balloon and just looking at the front of it looks like al qaeda may be dead but you missed the fact that it is popping out in all these other areas. gregg: what white house press secretary jay carney and u.n. ambassador susan rice were telling the american people, not to mention the folks on capitol hill, was simply untrue. they were doing that for more than a week as we mentioned. now the latest offering up an explanation is general james clapper, the director of national intelligence. and here's his explanation and or excuse depending upon your point of view. we'll put it o
, every week they've had dozens of staff on the ground in new hampshire for obama for months and months, got a real head start on canvassing, phone calling and motivating that democratic base that had been sagging a year ago. that is almost up to the same level of intensity of republican support for mitt romney and that's what makes this race so close and i think it will stay close all the way to november 6th. gregg: kevin, great to see you, thanks so much for your incites. jenna: you talk about the ground game and voter turn out, what about absentee ballots, what about legislate the troops vote while serving overseas. we'll tell you next what the pentagon is doing to increase voter participation by our military men and women, that is ahead. plus a rare spider. looks creepy. gregg: albino spied jeer that spider was discovered a long a highway and because it was discovered construction on a highway project worth millions of dollars was stopped. we'll tell you why next. [ male announcer ] in a world where breakfast has become boring and steless... only one man can save the day. kellogg's
presidential in that group. we'll see how he does next to president obama which i think is a little bit different. >> yeah. >> that ohio poll is interesting because the cbs one we had last week had it at ten points. now we have another one showing it at nine points. if you start to look at the map, if he doesn't take iowa, if it gets away from him, it becomes difficult to put a puzzle together to win. >> by the way, there has been this narrative that there is the grand conspiracy and that the polls are skewed. this is what walter mondale said in 1984. this is what moveon.org said in 2004, that all the polls were skewed against john kerry and moveon.org said you just wait. and now you're hearing it frantically on the other side, which ironically, again, they are putting fox news in the grand conspiracy. >> what about the conference call today that we have to plan and organize? >> exactly. my point is here we've got a couple of local polls that are showing this, and more importantly, and you guys talk to the romney people all the time. i certainly talk to them all the time. i can tell you
, it will be seen as the first step for the obama team to get its footing back. in the world we live in now, where everything is analyzed instantaneously, even before it happens, i think it is a meaningful event next week. >> it is important until the next presidential debate and then it becomes fairly irrelevant. >> it is important until it is over. >> they should have a disclaimer -- this debate is for entertainment purposes only. >> chicago is saying, thank god we have biden to pick us up after last night. [laughter] >> if first impressions are the most important and if the average american really tuned in for the first time, would that suggest that the next two presidential debates are less important? what is your opinion on how much the second and third presidential debates can matter? >> i think they are still very significant. it seems like ancient history now, but reagan's first debate against mondale did not go well and he turned it around in the second debate. what everybody wanted to happen, in terms of the voters, they wanted to reelect reagan because things were going well. they breat
